    McCourts' divorce will determine Dodgers ownership, direction - USATODAY.com

    A court commissioner has tentatively set a May trial date to decide the ownership dispute between Frank and Jamie McCourt, who are divorcing.

    The decision Tuesday by Superior Court Commissioner Scott M. Gordon means the issue won't be decided by the start of the baseball season.

    Frank McCourt claims he is the sole owner of the team and says he has a post-nuptial agreement with his wife to back up that claim.

    Jamie McCourt, despite having signed an agreement in 2004 giving her sole ownership of the couple's multiple real estate holdings and her husband sole ownership of the Dodgers, claims she is the co-owner of the team.

    1st on the staff in innings pitched (+43 1/3 over Kershaw), quality starts (24 vs. 16) and starter WHIP (1.10 vs 1.23), second in ERA and wins. Don't think it's a stretch to say he was LA's best starter last year.

    Sure, would rather have Kershaw and he will likely be dominant for many years, but Wolf had the better year in 2009.

    Some info on the two pitchers the Dodgers are reportedly getting from the White Sox:

    FutureSox.com | John Ely

    Ely was 14-2 with a 2.82 ERA in AA last year.

    FutureSox Prospect Rankings

    * #20 – 2009 Preseason

    * #19 – 2009 Midseason

    * #13 – 2009 Postseason

    Accolades

    * 2009 White Sox Best Changeup (Baseball America)

    * 2009 Southern League All-Star Game

    * 2009 Southern League Post-Season All-Star

    * 2009 All-FutureSox Team Starting Pitcher

    Scouting report
    The quick-working former Homewood-Floosmoor hurler has all the intangibles you want. He is aggressive and seemingly fearless. His arsenal is highlighted by a great changeup that Baseball America has called plus-plus. His low 90s fastball has good movement combines with the change to give him a good groundball rate. He also has a 12-to-6 curveball that can be good, but is inconsistent. He has stayed healthy as a pro despite concerns out of college about his delivery. His delivery is considered “max-effort” but is somewhat deceptive. Ely has had good control, but has had mediocre peripherals the past two seasons. He has moved through the minors quickly, skipping Low-A, which could be contributing to lesser stats. Either way, those stats don’t make him look like a good Major League prospect. Still, Ely has a good ERA for the Barons this year and has shown gradual improvement each of the last two seasons. Don’t pencil Ely into any future rotations, but don’t be shocked if he gets a shot somewhere down the line.

    Accolades

    * 2009 White Sox Best Slider (Baseball America)

    Scouting report
    Link has struck out a lot of batters in the minors because he has a very good slider, but his fastball and change are solid offerings as well. His fastball usually sits 93-94 m.p.h. and has some sink on it. His changeup has gotten better, helping him get lefties out, but he walked almost a batter an inning against lefties in 2009 for Charlotte. He has the stuff to pitch in the bigs, but he needs to make strides with his control. Link should contend for a spot in the 2010 bullpen if he proves he can throw more strikes.

In the more likely scenario that neither pans out, the Dodgers essentially gave Pierre away to save $8 million over two years.

    The non arbitration offers to Wolf & Hudson, along with this move, speak volumes about the Dodgers and their current situation in my opinion. I assume that most moves made this offseason will be financially driven first, baseball driven second.

    My guess on the next move is a Russell Martin trade, mainly because he's due to get another bump in arbitration and the team probably feels they can replace him cheaper with AJ Ellis + a vet signed at a low salary.

    And despite what they've said so far, would not be shocked to see Sherrill dealt. Two closers making closer type money is a luxury I'm not sure they can afford these days.
    **** you McCourt. **** you.

    It would be hilarious if Frank gets bought out. Get that carpet bagger out of LA.
